Thanks for the quick reply.
So this isn't something that is going to get fixed?  Just because I would like to understand why, would Mike or anyone else be able to point me to some documentation, email thread, or be able to explain that too me.  Thanks in advance.

Josh.

In the later versions of Saxon you must produce some output otherwise it's an error... I can't remember why but Mike did say.  It is slightly annoying when doing a quick stylesheet to check something out you always have to remember to produce at least some output to avoid this problem.

Subject: [saxon] FW: Transformation Error

I have a problem in Saxon 8.4.  Transforming with a empty stylesheet gives the error below.  This works in Saxon 6.5.3, but now fails in 8.4.  Also, if I run the test in Java 1.4.2 without Saxon in my classpath, it fails.  Running the test in Java 1.5 without Saxon in my classpath, it completes.  Running in either Java 1.4.2 or 1.5 with Saxon 8.4 in my classpath fails.  Does this look like a bug?  I have attached a simple test to help demonstrate the issue.  Thanks.

Josh.
